New Neighbors League Club of Nashville
The purpose of the New Neighbors League Club (NNLC) is to bring together the newest residents of the Nashville area so they may meet and become friends while adjusting to new surroundings. The Club is a not-for-profit social organization with a variety of interest groups and special activities, including monthly luncheons and speakers. The club’s intent and all activities are entirely social.
Moving to a new city can be exciting and exhilarating but also a bit overwhelming. Making friends in a new location can be difficult for even the most outgoing person. New Neighbors League Club of Nashville offers women the opportunity to cultivate new relationships while engaging in fun-filled activities and exploring their new city. We cordially invite women in the Nashville area to join our Club of fun and friendship.
NNLC is the official social club of New Neighbors League, Inc., founded by Theodore R. Briggs, a former Dayton, Ohio newspaperman, in 1939. From the business of meeting new residents and the experience of Theodore’s wife Bunny, the need for a social group to allow newcomers to meet and associate became apparent. With many moves to her credit before Dayton, Bunny drafted the constitution and by-laws of NNLC with the aid of Ohio’s Federated Women’s Club, chartering the first Cincinnati chapter, in 1943. In 1986, NNLC Corporate and Club Headquarters moved to Atlanta and Cheryl Beaudreault became National President.
There are currently fourteen chapters nationwide. Our Nashville chapter was founded in 1951 by Mary Fitts, and has over 200 members from all over the United States and several foreign countries. Affiliated chapters are located in Alabama, Georgia (2 chapters), Kansas, Nebraska, Missouri (2 chapters), Ohio (4 chapters), Tennessee, Texas and Washington, D.C. Each chapter operates independently within established guidelines and under the direction of a local Board of Directors and a Club Director.
